Let’s have a nice bit of Techno.
Today’s track is taken from a limited edition clear sampler from Sandwell District. The 12″ is one of 2 samplers released on the label this month, the other a lovely shade of blue both featuring tracks which will may or may not appear on the upcoming album release.
Sandwell District are a rather anonymous record label which doesn’t have a myspace page or website but does have a fax # if you want to get in touch. They have been infrequently releasing quality techno since 2002 in the tradition of Underground Resistance and Basic Chanel.
The label, it appears, believe in giving the minimum information on their records, we do get the name of the artists but nothing so mundane as song titles.
There are a few protagonists behind the music on the label, such as DJ Caspar (Silent Servant|), Female (Pete Sutton) and US producer Dave Sumner who records under the name Function, who provides the track featured here.
The artists on the label are from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Berlin and Birmingham, Sandwell being an area in Birmingham.
